Yes, I play football at the Pro level and there are many skilled position players as well as special teams players that only wear shoulder pads and helmets.. In practice we sometimes only wear shoulder pads and helmets we call it pro-pads we also wear this during training camp a lot and when we are not going to hit full speed.

What helmets do NFL players use?

the official helmet company of the NFL is Riddell, so most players in the NFL wear those, because in order to wear any other helmet the players have to have the name of the company taken off the helmet. ive noticed that most players wear the Revolution Speed by Riddell. its the best helmet that Riddell produces. ive only seen two other players wearing a helmet by another company although im sure there are more, Chad Ochocinco and Justin Tuck both wear the Ion 4D by Schutt which is the best helmet made to this point.

Why are NHL players required to wear helmets?

NHL Players are required to wear Helmets for two reasons. One is if the fall, of corse. And two is because of the Hitting. One thing though is that the NHL Goaltenders do NOT need to wear a helmet. As the "NHL Rules" only said that "Goaltenders are highly suggested to wear a sort of protective helmet" which means they don't have to if they don't want to. But if they come into the game with one they must wear it during the game but if they show up without one no one can stop him from playing because of it.


What is unique about the Pittsburgh Steelers helmet logo?

The Steeler logo is only featured on one side of the helmet.


Why is there only one logo on a Pittsburgh Steelers helmet?

In 1962, the Steelers equipment manager Jack Hart applied the logo to the helmet (at that time the helmets were a solid gold color) and the Steelers were uncertain how it would look. So he applied them to the right side only. Later on, even after changing the helmet color to black, they left the logo on the right side only, due to the teams new found success & uniqueness of the logo. The Steelers are now the only team with a logo on only one side of the helmet.
